I have a balsa USA Taube still in the box it has like 81 inch wingspan Ive never built anything as elaborate as this is there are probably 500 pieces to this kit. I hope to start working on it in the very near future though it will probably take until spring to finish. I will be looking fir advice on everything from glue to especially covering. I haven't covered a balsa plane yet. I would like to do something colorful.

I hope this model doesn't have all that cable detail

This plane had lots of cables. Used wing warping for control.

Yes it is my backyard. When son swings the camera and you see the 3 martin houses my house is hidden in the background. The open field I fly over I own about 1/3, then there are 2 open fields that join it own by 2 other people. The field next to mine is a hay field too, then the next person mows his. I will try to make a video of one of my planes after the leaves change color this fall. Being able to fly this close to the house is really nice in the winter. I put the battery in the plane in the house then go out in the cold to fly. Only problem is taking off and landing. Runway is not too smooth or flat. LOL

Every once in a while I have to feed the bushes a plane. Once fed they will leave my planes alone for a while.

Mini DRI
 
I shouldn't do this Boys, but look what I found! A mini DRI http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXBBSJ&P=7
Just happens to be RED! :mad: Doesn't anyone have any imagination anymore? :confused: When (not if Boys!) I get mine, you can bet a week's pay it won't stay RED for long! :eek: Besides, I need a new INDOOR airplane for the winter season. Looks like this will fit the bill. Steve, I think you need ANOTHER DRI, don't you? :D;) Comments Boys? Marty

I wanted a Sopwith Triplane so I could chase that Flyzone Albatros around. I got to fly my flying buddy's Flyzone Albatros. I was doing ok till I kept slowing for a landing, it just suddenly quit flying and fell out of the air from about 2 feet up. No stall or any warning just fell. It is so light nothing was damaged. I like my 250-300 planes better. When you are flying think about my buddy, he is in the VA hosp. Hope he gets out soon.

Don
I watched all your videos on YouTube. They are all very nice planes. I like your Breguet alot. It flew straight an nice. I noticed this video of the pretty Albatross was nice but the angle of attack in flight appears to be flying with the tail down most of the flight. Is it a tad tailheavy or does it need another degree of downthrust. It is almost like it is going to stall to me. What do you think? You are the pilot.

I think it is flying with the wings flat. Most of the underchamber of the top wing has flattened with age. It is not close to a stall. I think the only way to make it fly with tail highter is to take the wings off and change thier angle. This plane has been crashed several times and rebuilt at least twice.

I thought this came out pretty cool! A little WW1 disco art! :silly:

Very nice!!! I like the scheme on that one Don! I wish I had your flight area, just looks peaceful. I love being able to walk accross the street to a school yard and have free reign, but at times it gets crowded and I have to ground the squadron. Looks like your only issue might be a tractor going by~~~ Nice job!

Been having fun working with some pics.

**neons** 09-24-2011 04:33 AM

Very nice flight. The plane has a nice color sheme and it is surely very easy to see in flight. Thanks for sharing your videos and ideas.
